A+E Networks Upfront immersive event experience around the theme of 'Women Upfront: The Storytellers' for ad sales. Four months in the making and from the beginning it was clear that the New York Public Library would be the perfect location and canvas of where the beginnings of A+E's Upfront would take place. The initial theme 'House of Story' was a broader premise where A+E's brands would have a platform to tell individual stories. Olivia Munn, Queen Latifah, Kristin Davis, Leah Remini and many more personalities came to tell personal stories of how they connect with A+E's brands. From the steps of the NYPL to cocktail hour, the dinner and gift bags—this 360 immersive experience had social media in mind, but more importantly, provide a platform for storytelling to be heard and expressed at a time when a movement is happening for women all over the world. Design and aesthetic had to reflect the A+E brand—fun, playful yet sophisticated, confident, understated and chic in aesthetic. From the smallest elements like napkins, to the broader ideas around event sound design and graphics, concepted and executed to be one of the largest and most successful events in A+E Networks history.

What do you get when you cross the beloved institution of Puppy Bowl and the “On Tropic Time Now” brand promise of Tropical Smoothie Café? An adorable co-branded day at the beach for Cafecito and his adopted human Patty. Longtime client and collaborators at Discovery first came to us with the idea of “catching up with a former Puppy Bowl puppy now living his best life” and asked us to help visualize it through a Tropical Smoothie Café lens. A quick look into the TSC brand guide and it was obvious that we needed to flex our live-action skills and take our four-legged friend to the beach. Immediately, we reached out to our production partner Waypoint Films for help facilitating the production and in no time, we were standing on the broad walk of Hollywood beach, smoothies in hand, capturing our subjects frolicking in the sand. Upon wrapping the successful shoot, we set to work editing a story about the personality and chemistry of Cafecito (now named Mooshu) and Patty, music video style. Not surprisingly the hardest part was deciding which moment to include of the seemingly endless magic moments our pup and human provided. The campaign included: social media stills, videos, and boomerangs, an on-air :30, and a longer web vignette which saw over a million views on Facebook.

A blank page is never really blank. There is always a customer with a need and a client who wants to fulfil a promise. That is where we start all our concepts, elbows deep in the strategy and the brief. It's our starting point for original creativity. From there its a short hop skip and a jump to scripts, storyboards too animatics and beyond!

When Paradox Interactive tasks us with creating the brand and announcement for Imperator: Rome it was no easy feat. The game was still firmly in development and without any assets to lean we decided to tell the history of Rome in the form of one custom design and rather magnificent sculpture.
